A National Law Firm for Victims of Sexual Abuse, Handling cases across the Country

Herman Law has attorneys who are admitted in NY, FL and the California bar (see lawyer bios ). This allows the Herman Law attorneys, if they are not already admitted to the court, to apply to appear as attorneys of record in all 50 States of the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as all Federal District Courts, by requesting that the judge presiding over a case permit them to appear Pro Hac Vice (“for this occasion only”).

Often we do this in association with a knowledgeable local attorney in that jurisdiction who provides insight into local legal custom and practice and assists in the logistics for matters in that jurisdiction.

What to do if you suspect your child was sexually abused

If a parent thinks their child might have been sexually abused, the most important thing to do is not ignore it. You have to get help, you have to try to find answers and you need resources to be able to do that, and so the first thing is if you suspect abuse,  report it, report it to the criminal authorities, report it to the abuse hotline. There are professionals who can help understand and investigate what happened. It’s a crime and it should be reported. Now sometimes parents will  they say well I’m not sure. You report it and you investigate and find out. Let the professionals do that.

The second thing is, you should get legal help for your family and for your child. You have the right to understand your rights and have a civil attorney. You know and so one of the things that I do in many occasions is simply just provide advice. One of the things I do is to give information to families so they can make an informed decision. They need to know what they can do. They need to know what things are available to them. They need to know their alternatives. And so, I always say parents get information, come in and talk and find out what you can do, what alternatives are available to you.
